There are some great challenges this month, and I must admit I have really enjoyed doing these layouts.

My first layout is for Challenge 1 - Sketch Challenge - to any size layout, traditional or digi based on the sketch by Trina McClune found here.

I had to turn this around a little as I did not have a portrait photo that I could use. I haven't participated in sketch challenges much in the past, but I have really love doing the last couple.

I loved doing this challenge This second layout is for Challenge 3 - Word Challenge - The word for May is "WORLD". Do a Layout or Off the Page project based on "WORLD".

Recently I have watched a couple of Louie Giglio's DVD's entitled "Indescribable" and " How Great is Our God". This certainly put into perspective just how great, how Huge and our aweseome our God really is - He is the creator of the Universe - this Earth we live in is a very very small part of God's creation, and yet God so loved us, that he sent his only son to die for us, so that we could have a relationship with him and live with him forever. This was the inspiration behind this layout.

My final layout is for Challenge 5 -Mystery Challange - "Meet with God". Scrap a layout or OTP which shares where you meet with God. This might be your Church, your Bible study group, the top of a mountain, the shower ... wherever it might be where you feel you meet with God.

This is my response to the challenge to scrap where I meet with God. Although I regularly spend time with God at home in my bedroom or office, it is the times that I sit watching the sun set or the waves rolling in on the beach that I am really aware of God's aweseomeness, his majesty, and his power. I guess being a creative person, watching a sunset like this reminds me that God is also creative and that each sunrise and sunset are an expression of his creativity, as these vibrant colours are splashed across the evening sky. Scenes like this really do bring me into the presence of God and make me want to worship and praise HIM.
The Heavens declare the glory of GOD: the skies proclaim the works of his hands.
Psalm 19:1.

How are you going with this months challenges - I'm so looking forward to seeing your layouts.
